A girl at Barasti on Friday night (not my choice of venue before anyone comments)

"This guy was chatting to me and he says he's Spanish....that means he's from Spain right?"

At this point, to the horror of my Mrs I choked on my drink, laughed in her face and walked off.

My favourite type of dog.

Closely followed by a Great Dane.

Already been reliably informed that when I am willing to get a dog I'm not allowed either. Apparently only Golden Retrievers will do.
